at about 830, was added to the list of the
poisoned, having picked up a piece of
meat somewhere which had been richly
seasoned, and which, had it not be"en for
the valuable" medical ability of Dr. W.D.
Jones, of the " Bonner House," Platts
mouth, would surely hare proved fatal to
the poor, unfortunate animal. He made
a preparation which brought the dog to
hU senses, and they 8U3cecL?d in getting
the dog to his feet in about fiftein tnin
titeft afterwards. At present writing the
oulse is normal and there are signs of
recovery which enlighten the blighted

physician, Mr. Jones. If information can
be given as to who put the poison out,

-A team of mules belonging to Len
hofT & Socnnichsen, while standing in
their yard yesterday afternoon, scared be
cause one dropped one of the extensive
attachments from the top of its head far
enough either to see it or the immense
shadow it threw on the ground in front,
and imagining a tree or some other
weighty material was about to take
drop, started up the street for dear life
until they came in contact with a hill,
which did not necessitate a great distance
in this city of ours, and realizing the fact
that climbing a lull would cause a little
extra exertion, stopped short. They were
about to turn around and make a return
trip when a boy appeared upon the scene
and succeeded in stopping them in their
frantic efforts to escape.
Wc are pleased to be afforded, an
opportunity to chronicle the anticipated

srraceful. and eloouent speakers in this
country." New York Times.
-The funeral of the late Mrs. Cole
took place yesterday afternoon at the res
idence of her husband, Mr. W. W,
Cole. The service was conducted
by Rev. W. B. Alexander, of the
M. E. church, and his sympathetic speak
ing, combined witn me music, wuicu was
so effectively rended by a number of the
a a -m
members of the M. E. church and others,
brought tears to the eyes of many of those
present. Every person who has had the
pleasure of an ncnuaintance with the
family, deeply smpathize with the bereav

The extremely short illness and sudden
death seems to call forth a more severe
shock, and draws from the hearts of all
the most sincere regret, and we are sure
no one could have been present at th
service yesterday without realizing th
most unutterable feelings of grief. The
remains were taken to the B. & M. depot
where they awaited tho arrival of th
flyer. They were taken to her old home
at Lyons, N. Y.. for interment, when
Mr. Cole will remain for a couple of
weeks. Appended we giye a brief his
tory of her life; " Luanna L.,. wife o
W. W. Cole, wa3 a rt&tiyo of Lyons, N.Y.
.ind was about thirty-eight years old. he
was united in marriage to Mr. Cole in
November, 1871. She leaves behind her
husband and two children, aged fourteen
and seven, respectively, whose sorrows are
shared by many irunds. Airs. Cole was
a true Christian woman, a loving com
paniou, an affectionate mother, and
good and kind neighbor. Her home has
teen in Plattsmouth for the last four
years, during which time she endeared
herself to all with whom she came into
intimate acquaintance. The most of her
life she was a member of the Presbyterian
church, but lately si6 had been attending
the services of the M. E. church. $nd we
are informed it wa3 her purpose to have
united there had she been spared. Her
sickness, though brief, was severe. Most
of the time, during the last five days, she
was not rational. Her husband thinks
she bad premonition of the approach of
death for sjmo time, and ifjm the be
ginning of her sickness she said that she
woal.l not recover.

Last evening about 7 o'clock, Kittie
Grace, a child about three years old, and
Ralph Palmer, a boy about five or six,
were playing in the yard at the rear of
Mr. Jas. Grace's residence on Pearl street,
and were making preparations to partake
of a supper which the little girl had pre
pared for them on her little table. The
boy, thinking her table was not complete
and imagining be could improve on it by
making an addition in the way of drinks,
left for his home to procure some coffee
He soon returned with what he supposed
to be coffee, but which proved to be lie,
and diyided up with his little hostess. Il
is supposed he got the lie from a can
which had been left around carelessly at
his home. They each took a mouthful of
the lie but were conscious of their mistake
before swallowing any great quantity of
it, it being so strong. They soon re
ported their trouble by screaming which
attracted the attention of several of
the neighbors who soon went to their as
sistance. A doctor was soon summoned
and they were treated, after which theii
severe burns were eased. As neither of
them swallowed any of the lie they will
probably come out all right, but their
fougucs are blistered terribly making
them white. The boy seems to be an On
fortunate lad, as he has just recovered
after being hooked in the neck by a cow
some time ago.
A Card of Thanks.
Mr. Cole wishes to tender a card of
thanks to all who so kindly and volun
tarily rendered their much appreciated
assistance during the sickness of his wife.
A large number of friends were ever
ready and willing to lend a helping hand,
for which assistance be wishes to extend
his sincere thanks.

Among the crowds which gather on St.
Mark's piazza in the lovely spring afternoons
arc women quite as beautiful as those which
smile on you from tha canvas of the old
painters. They are fond of strange tints,
odd shadesjof red, green and blue; they wear,
some of them, old fashioned three cornered
shawls of Hue patterns und bold colors, pre
senting a very picturesque appearance. Many
of the children are remarkably pretty. They
look out with their large eyes from under their
tangled, curly locks, like so many cherubs
fitted with half naked bodies. They are very
thievish, too, and one has to be very watch
ful of them. That most of them are beggars
will be no news to your readers. If you go
in the evening to eat an ice or take a cup of
coffee at Florian's, in St. Mark's square,
theso soft voiced, ragged little thieves come
creeping up to you with their bright faces,
pointing to their red ripe mouths to tell you
they are hungry, offering matches for sale or
asking you for the end of your cigar, your
coffee, your cake. Cut they must be watched
all the time, for they will steal whatever they
lay their hands on. Venice Cor. Providence
